    Afternoon peeps.
    Stumbled on the half price cat food in little A.
    Boxes of pouches 1.50- 3.25 each.
    Felix, Iams.
    Whiskas pouches 20p.
    Dreamies 50p.
    Loads of choice.

    Treated my stray !!!!! to 2 worth using a very rare womble that I found last week.

    Your stray what? That's what it causes me to think. Ah - your stray dog? But you were mentioning cat food. So I am confused.

    "Please could you clarify precisely and exactly what you meant."



    EDIT: Ha! I now have it. No need to reply. Stupid website thinks you meant something for a vagina (why bring that thought to my mind? Wouldn't have happened if the website had just left the original word intact - which I now have anyway, only going via another word for a dog - so the censor of the website has not only made matters worse but has failed completely anyway as the five exclamation points have communicated, eventually, the original word. I think it needs to do more than merely remove every one of the letters of the word as doing that is ineffective and it needs greater censorship - they need to remove more than just every letter of the word and, as that's impossible to do, the whole thing is just a failure - and, importantly, if you did mean the offensive word and I was to have been offended by that, I would have been just as offended by the conveyance of it via the exclamation points as the message conveyed and meaning is the same as I would by the printing of the word. As you didn't mean that but merely meant another word for a cat, I'm therefore, only for that reason, saved from offence. But I have gone via another 'offensive' word in addition - that would not have been done had the word been fully allowed as it should have been in the context that the system is unable to detect. The system should stop this passive-aggressiveness that it does of the changing to communication using symbols().)

    Just to clarify, I am not aiming this at you or complaining about you - the complaint is against the ineffective censor. It could have caused all sorts of arguments now by causing misunderstanding and you thinking I was having a go at you when I'm not. The censor could therefore have caused all sorts of fall-outs that wouldn't have happened had it not intervened inappropriately - fortunately I hope we are both well.

    At least I read [past tense] the symbols exactly the same as the word being there now. Does "!!!!!cat" work? No it doesn't.


    Right - I am actually off out now, after this unnecessary diversion caused by my struggling initially to understand your OP due to no fault of yourself.

    Bye for now (the computer that put the symbols there has simply wasted my time)! Actually, if I may get annoyed and offended by a waste of my time eh?

    There is a correction I would make. And that would be a correction of the exclamations back into the actual word. I am here as a concern with accuracy and complete and full truthfulness above all else (even if the complete full truth sometimes causes me offence). Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way of correcting it back to the word and resolving this problem. The problem that I have with the censor. Does that code where you type the word backwards but it then appears forwards work?

    So, there you are: a post with a tiny little element in one sentence - which I pick up on that element, which is the five exclamation points which I circle with red pen and return back as inaccurate and incorrect. The world that doesn't quite follow the way that this person who has Asperger's works.
